In Debian, runlevels 2, 3, 4, and 5 all start identical services.  So,
there's no reason to boot into runlevel 3 vs. 2 vs. the others.

There's nothing any more "rigid" about Red Hat's runlevels than
Debian's.  They both have a default setup, and both of them allow the
user to change that default setup.
